We have several skates with different skills. Please review the Skating Skills matrix for these events. The matrix will help you choose a skate that is appropriate and safe for you. Also, please review our standard skating signals.
The skates are:
We also have other events like our Social Skates and The Halloween skate. Check out the Calendar to get the most up-to-date list of events.
We require that all skaters sign a waiver at their first ICB event- the waiver then applies to all future events you may attend this season. Save yourself time Download the waiver here, fill it out, and bring it with you to the event. Note: the waiver is in PDF format. If you have trouble viewing it, you may need to download the free Acrobat Reader.
Even if you do not join the club, please be advised that the USE of HELMETS and WRIST GUARDS is REQUIRED during events sponsored by the InLine Club of Boston ("ICB"), including but not limited to its weekly city and night skates, and that ICB strongly recommends that all participants in such events should carry medical and liability insurance and should wear full protective gear (such as a helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, and, at night, reflective clothing and blinking lights). Please also be advised that there are particular inherent risks of injury involved in city inline skating, including, but not limited to: dangers arising from falls, equipment failure, collision with vehicles, bicycles, other skaters, and pedestrians, unexpected obstacles including potholes, manhole covers, grates, chains, trolley tracks, cobblestones, bad pavement, water, oil, debris, gravel, curbs, stairs, hills and inclines, severe injury and death. This list of possible risks is not comprehensive, because conditions on the street, including the weather and lighting, are constantly changing. ICB cannot accept any liability for the existence of any such risks. Ultimately, each skater is responsible for staying alert to potential risks and obeying all traffic regulations. The ICB strongly recommends that all participants in ICB-sponsored events should be in good health, and should verify that their equipment is in good condition. Furthermore, all participants in ICB-sponsored events not specifically labeled as being for beginners should possess and master a set of minimum skate skills before participating in such events: the ability to skate in control, especially on hills and in groups of skaters; to stop in traffic; to maneuver curbs; and to avoid obstacles.
